Art

Art enables students to express their thoughts, ideas, and most importantly, their imagination. It is natural for a child to experiment in painting and drawing, thus, it is the objective of Art class to encourage and enhance this outlet of expression.

Art will be pursued in different mediums, allowing students to experiment and learn different techniques. The curriculum offers opportunities for experimentation in drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture/construction, using the six elements of art. The elements of art are a "visual alphabet" used by the artist: line, color, line, form, value, texture, shape and space. Students will study the color wheel, and recognize primary, secondary, warm and cool colors. Artwork of famous artists will be reviewed, allowing students to observe works by the same artist and from the same art movement.
